President's Reports

Executive Meeting Minutes

May 27, 2021

  • At the CURAC General Assembly held virtually on April 15/21, Jay Goldstein received a national Tribute Award, in recognition of his considerable contributions to both UMRA and the establishment of CURAC. 
  •  UMRA will hold its Annual General Meeting by Zoom conference this year on September 18, given the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • The Nominating Committee will propose a slate of candidates for continuing leadership of UMRA.  All members attending will have the opportunity to approve the slate of candidates and/or propose additional retiree members for consideration. 
  • Gladys Stewart is the new Chair of our Membership Committee.  After a one-year grace period, due to the COVID pandemic, membership fees will be assessed starting with the 2021-22 business year of the Association.  There is no fee increase for the upcoming year. 
  • The UMRA postgraduate endowed Scholarship for Aging Research has achieved sufficient contributions to be advertised for an award competition in the fall of 2021.
  • UMRA is asking for volunteers to serve on its Communications Committee.  Interested retirees should contact Gene Walz, Chair, or Daniel Sitar, President, to indicate their interest in contributing to the functions of keeping our members informed of important issues relevant to University of Manitoba retirees.
